Even More Electro-Harmonix POG Tones -- With 8 Recallable Presets
Get your axe ready for the Electro-Harmonix POG2 Polyphonic Octave Generator pedal. Adding in a little extra flavor to the original and infamous 2005 POG design, this dynamic reboot features eight programmable presets for your signal -- divided into voice mix sliders and effects settings controls. A DRY FX switch allows you to bypass your effects settings when you want to, as well as a Q switch to toggle between four levels of resonance for the POG2's low-pass filter. The reset control dial on the top right allows you to program up to eight different presets utilizing the preset stomp switch on the bottom left corner.
Check out our overview of the Electro-Harmonix POG2 Polyphonic Octave Generator:
A Symphony of Sounds -- Just Add High and Low Octaves
This pedal will get you a wide array of sounds, from a 12-string guitar-ish jangle to a powerfully resonating organ-like texture. On the left, you have your dry output slider -- then a series of sliders for two octaves below, one octave below, one octave above, and finally two octaves above. If you're looking for some beefy low end to fill things out, push the lower octaves up. If you want to hit chiming higher notes unknown to your guitar's natural state, bring those upper octaves into the mix. Having so many layers of melodic control at your feet gives you more avenues of sonic dimensions to control. You'll find yourself spending hours playing around to hear your guitar sing like you've never heard it before.
On the right side of your Electro-Harmonix POG2 are the effects controls. The Attack slider can be used to introduce gentle swells for string-like sounds, and the LP Filter slider control dials in the cutoff for the low-pass filter, brightening or mellowing your tone The Detune slider provides some hypnotizing chorus-like oscillations to mimic Leslie speaker sounds with surprising accuracy. Right smack in the middle of the POG2 are DRY FX and Q switches. The Dry FX switch features four modes, allowing the dry signal to pass through or bypass the Attack, LP Filter, and Detune effects. The Q switch allows your signal to pass through four levels of resonance for the low pass filter.
Save Your Settings in 8 Preset Slots
With so many settings and sounds available on your POG2, you'll soon find more than one go-to sound. Use the preset control dial on the top right and dedicated Preset footswitch to save and recall up to eight different preset settings. Having on-the-fly access to eight different settings allows you to move almost seamlessly through different sounds, even if you're in the middle of a set.
